Many women are masters at feeling bad about themselves and about the circumstances of their lives.
They walk through their life with a heavy heart, a pessimistic attitude and a wagon full of problems.
Their relationships are complicated; they rarely love their occupations and are seldom at peace with their body/temple image.
They are everywhere and they do this day after day after day. It is a true art form and you can do it too if you like...
Simply follow these 10 Sure Fire Ways to Feel Bad About Yourself.
1. Look at yourself in the mirror and criticize your body.
Inventory your flaws. Look at your self naked and shake your head in disgust. Tell that little girl inside how unacceptable she is. Feel the shame.
2. Start your morning with a coffee and a "just below the surface" dialoguewith your self of your problems.
Stay stuck there. You have a huge list of problems: people you are struggling with, unresolved stuff from your past, situations that are troublesome. So much to work with. Roll up your sleeve and pick some.
3. Have a private internal bitch session with someone who has violated your perceived borders.
Tell them off in your head. Itemize their shortcomings. Take their inventory and point out the holes in their socks. Do this as you brush your teeth or on your way to work. Go over it and over it. Be self-righteous, indignant... go ahead... set the tone for your day.
4. When some innocent soul asks you how you are today...tell her how crappy you feel.
Talk about bloating, headaches, your cold, your stomach ache, constipation, flu, sore back, blood pressure... revel in it... after all... they asked...
5. Be on constant guard of your boundaries.
Violators are everywhere. Notice what everyone else is doing and make sure they don't step on your toes. Your fragile ego needs to be protected at all costs. No one must ever get one up on you. Ever.
6. Have 'friends' scattered everywhere through out your day to gossip with.
High quality friendships that encourage nitpicking about other people's faults. People you can trust to not talk about you behind your back.
7. Make sure you have lots of avoidance techniques in your personal toolbox.
Comfort foods or other mood altering activities to avoid taking responsibility for your circumstances.
8. Do Not... do not read any inspirational materials.
It will only confuse you with messages of empowerment and personal growth. Who needs that? Inner work is for women with nothing important to do. You are too busy to sit in quiet, looking inward. After all, you have errands to run and emails to answer.
9. Carry your unfinished business with you everywhere you go.
Your grudges, resentments, wounds, victim stories. You bought a whole set of suitcases with wheels for your baggage. You can take it everywhere. Who doesn't like luggage?
10. Worry, doubt, anxiety. 'Your constant companions."
Pretend everything is fine on the outside, but keep these running just below the surface of your awareness. Feel them in your heart and in your body. Create your day from this platform.
Don't you just love that queasy feeling in the pit of your stomach? The ache in your heart? Why would anyone want to feel open and flowing and full of self confidence, approval and esteem?
So, there you have it.
A straightforward road map for spending the rest of your life feeling lousy. Look around at all the women in this exclusive club. Join the movement. Come over to the heavy side. Life is about suffering isn't it?
Just Kidding... but you knew that...
Take this advice and throw it out the window!!!
Do the opposites. Claim your right to a happiness! Embrace this opportunity to live a wonderful and joyful life as you... glorious you...
